Protesters unaware of truce talks under way in Ukraine

(CNN) – After deadly clashes between security forces and protesters, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych issued a statement Wednesday night declaring "the beginning of negotiations aimed at cessation of bloodshed and stabilization of the situation in the country for the sake of civil peace."

Hearing continued blasts nearby, "it could be fireworks, it could be a number of things, it certainly isn't a truce," CNN's Nick Paton Walsh says. Check out his report from Kiev in the video above.
